Villa dei Germogli is situated just 3.5 km from Positano, along the panoramic road leading from Sorrento to Positano, Amalfi and Ravello. The villa's name is inspired by the fact that it is completely immersed in a vast olive-grove which stretches over the cliff terraces and overlooks the sea. The villa is 310 metres squared and can accommodate up to 12 people. It extends over 7 hectares and is cultivated with olives and fruit trees. It boasts a wealth of fascinating footpaths that climb up the sea-facing slope of the mountainside. 

Villa dei Germogli is built around a 6 x 10 m swimming-pool and is surrounded by open-air living-rooms with bamboo furniture, which provide delightful meeting points for guests. The villa has 4 separate areas which are spread over different levels. The ground floor has a large living-room with a fireplace and TV and access to the garden. Two of the four double bedrooms, which all have ensuite bathrooms with showers and air-conditioning, are on the ground floor. One of the double bedrooms also has a single bed so can accommodate up to 3 guests. 

The second area is on a raised floor and has a 'suite' with a double bed, bathroom with hydro-massage shower and a large living room with access to private terrace. The third level has the final 'suite' with a double bed, single bed, bathroom with shower and private terrace. The fourth area is on a raised floor and boasts a large kitchen with dining area. There is also a fifth bathroom with a shower on this level. These four levels are connected to one other by fascinating external paths which has enabled the creation of a fantastic garden, rich in vegetation and full of enchanting secret corners. 

Villa dei Germogli has large panoramic terraces with plenty of bamboo furniture so that you can dine 'al fresco' whilst enjoying the stunning sea view. As the villa is divided into several areas, each of the four double bedrooms is a stunning 'suite' which are skilfully furnished and inspired by different styles including rustic, eighteenth century and oriental. All the suites have fully equipped bathrooms and the two main suites also enjoy wide panoramic windows and air-conditioning. Villa dei Germogli is equipped with all modern conveniences such as TV, stereo, dishwasher, washing-machine and WIFI internet connection. 

Its wonderful location means that all the main sights are within easy access including Sorrento (only 15km), Positano and its beautiful beaches (only 3.5km) and Naples (only 60km). We a recommend a car when staying here, although there is a bus stop 150 metres away. If you do have a car, you can park it in the secure, gated area. There is space for up to 3 mid-sized cars.

Lovely spot, gorgeous shady pool

This is a unique villa with a great feeling of space as bedrooms are on separate levels . Lovely pool with beautiful backdrop/ flowers and plants and shade for those days when you need a break from the hustle and bustle. Carmine, Enzo and Sara were a fantastic help - thank you!

Thank you for your review. It was a pleasure to welcome you all. We hope to host you again in the future.

"Excellent villa!"

My family and I loved staying in this beautiful villa. It was so beautiful and in the perfect location. Carmine was amazing from start to finish. Check in was a breeze. He cooked for us and even did a cooking lesson with us! He did such a great job in helping us plan our day trips. I would recommend this villa to anyone!!!!

"Dream come true!"

This villa was above and beyond our dreams. It is a beautiful four level home with every comfort you could want or need. Carmine was an amazing activity organizer, chef, director, transport could not go wrong with any recommendations he made. He organized everything we could possibly want and more. Not to mention patience with 9 women!! Sara was amazing and you felt like family by the time you left. She was so kind and considerate. Thank you Enzo too, for checking on us, upkeep of the area and spending time with us. The villa was felt like you were in a beautiful resort with just your family and friends. Thank you for a truly wonderful experience!

"Stunning Villa near Positano - great for families or large group"

We were very pleased with our find in this property. It lived up to the descriptions with separate buildings on either side of the pool dripping in Bougainville villa. The brother and sister who maintain this property were fantastic - happy to engage with us and give advice on places to eat and visit. They worked every day on the grounds and cleaning the rooms and kitchen and even doing laundry! There are multiple decks on this property, more of a compound, offering stunning views of the bay and the island once owed by Rudolf Nureyev! The driveway is tricky to access from the winding road in front but once inside the gates, the property is superb. I highly recommend this property. Positano, Sorreto, Pompeii and Vesuvious are nearby and we spent an unforgettable day on a private boat around Capri - well worth a full day of vacation.

"Totally gorgeous villa in perfect location"

I am hesitant in recommending this villa, as I want this place to remain my secret. However my good side tells me it's only fair to share our experience. The villa is well located, extremely clean and has everything you could wish for. The views from the terrace were incredible and we just found ourselves saying nothing to each other for hours and just staring at the view. The olive trees created a great backdrop for our BBQs on the terrace. The owner of the Villa and his family are delightful and always happy to help, they made our trip very special.we can't wait to return. It is a short drive to the town of Positano where you can but fresh produce, the evenings are lovely in the town with music playing and some kind of orchestra on. We were also lucky to be there when there was a festival and saw the fireworks set off from the sea.

“10 glorious days in paradise”

We are a group of friends from all parts of Australia and England who made a date to meet in Positano for a wonderful holiday together in September. We stayed in the wonderful Villa Dei Germogli and had the best 10 days that we can all remember for such a long time. We were blessed with beautiful weather for our time there, and also blessed with some wonderful company and assistance from Vincenzo and Sara, who not only cared for us and the property during our stay; but also live just down the road. They became good friends with all of us while we stayed. We cannot speak highly enough of this wonderful family...local people who made our stay very special. This is a trip that we will remember forever. My daughter had her 9th birthday party at the villa, a pool party. It was such a special occasion, and she is still talking about it a month later. We highly recommend staying at Villa Dei Germogli, and immersing yourself in Positano life as much as you can. The villa is close enough to the township of Positano, but still far enough away not to be bothered by the crowds. If you go to the Amalfi Coast, you will love this lovely paradise away from home. Buon Viaggi

"We were very well looked after by Naples Villas and the staff"

This property is wonderful and quirky. The listing description and photos don't show how truly wonderful this villa is! All rooms open to the outdoors and due to the situation - being built quite literally into the cliff - it is totally secure for children and families. There is plenty of space both indoors and outdoors. The property is very well equipped, especially the kitchen, and beautifully maintained. We were very well looked after by Naples Villas and the staff at the property who have all been working at the property for many years. It was wonderful to spend time chilling out and exploring the villa, however there are also loads of places to visit in the area. Due to the location we hired a car, although on some trips we arranged for a taxi to pick us up as parking near to the towns can be challenging. Especially recommended is the boat trip to Capri organised by Naples Villas and a visit to Pompeii and Vesuvius.

"Our stay at Villa Dei Germogli was just great!"

Our hosts met us at the villa just as arranged and helped us with directions and everything we asked of them. The villa is so beautifully located on Amalfi Coast few minutes away from Positano. We had favorite restaurants, cafes and trattorias within few minutes drive! The villa is huge. We couldn't believe our luck after small places we had stayed at elsewhere in Europe. We would highly recoomend the villa and would not hesitate to book the villa again for next year. Professionalism is everything when booking a holiday specially in Italy.
